Comments by walkers who stayed at Eagle and Child in Staveley on The Dales Way
It is worth organising your Dales Way walk to stay here on your last night, leaving about 6 miles to Bowness.

Although the decor in the bedrooms is slightly wacky, the rooms are comfortable. The breakfast is also good.

The real find is the bar and food, both of which are excellant. We stayed on a friday, and the pub was busy- a testament to the popularity of the place.

Great end to our walk

This hotel was brilliant. Good food, good service, good location. The room was a bit small but overall it was excellent value for money. We stayed two nights here and got the train back to Staveley from Bowness at the end of the walk (2 single fare) because we couldn't get accomodation in Bowness for one night only.
Walk into Staveley and find the Artisan bakery near the Brewery and buy your lunch to take with you- superb.

We walked the Dales Way in May of this year, and this was our last stop before Bowness. The room was quiet, and clean, and the evening meal excellent. Not too far off the trail, and Staveley is worth a look around. We'd gladly stay here again.

Our party of 6 Aussies stayed here on 22 Sept 06 - we had a great night - the food was excellent (and huge - try the Pork Hock!) - good variety of beer and cask ciders (left over from the previous week's beer/cider festival?). Staveley has its own brewery and a french bread place - le pain de Paris - which provides a great lunch supply (also a huge mountain bike place where you can hire bikes if you fancy testing some different muscles). Definitely recommended.

Fantastic pub with bags of character and a real friendly atmosphere. The staff are chatty and polite. There are numerous local/specialist ales and the food is plentiful and of a high quality (finish the cumberland breakfast if you can!).

The rooms are OK rather than great although the ensuite bathrooms are very clean. The rooms come with the usual tea/coffee facilties, etc.

Thursday night is pub quiz night which lasts 2 hours and is real fun.

The other pubs in the area are quite poor in comparison, and my advice for walkers is to stay here or camp - there really is nowehere else.

They wouldn't let us in (on a quiet Wednesday night in October). They didn't know of any other B&B in Staveley, but we found the Station Inn - excellent beer and food and half the price of the Eagle & Child

We would thoroughly recommend the Eagle & Child Inn. Rooms were more than adequate and spotlessly clean. A most cheery welcome from the staff who couldn't do enough for us.Food excellent (steer clear of the lamb joint if you are intending to walk the next day). Good choice of beers enjoyed in the June sunshine in the riverside garden.
We stayed 2 nights at the Eagle & Child Inn returning by train from Windermere on the last day. The journey is only 10 minutes and the train station is only a couple of minutes walk away.

Great place for the last night. Super rooms, good beer. Wine limited folowing burglary.
Food very good.
